We need your support to get our message out there, and together we can help democratise our economy. Our case for the Citizens’ Economic Council shows how important it is that we all have a say in economic policy, and highlights the contribution we all can make

REEMA PATEL

RSA Programme Manager

The Citizens’ Economic Council is a programme giving citizens a say on national economic policy, and influence the future of the UK economy.

The process is being overseen by an independent advisory group. The Council will be a catalyst for sparking a broader public discussion about the goals and priorities of economic policy, through an open online resource library and by promoting citizen deliberation over economic policy at events in communities up and down the country.

We want to build a stronger economic democracy in the UK through informed engagement and discussion. A group of 50-60 citizens will undertake a journey of economic inquiry during the course of the 2-year programme to deliberate and innovate on economic policy.

There will be an opportunity to participate in the conversation on Twitter #citizenseconomy @citizenseconomy and contribute your ideas for a fairer economy via our crowdsourcing platform.

If you would like to contact us about the programme, please e-mail citizenseconomy@rsa.org.uk

We had 15 participants, Reema Patel gave a good breakdown and the session lasted 1 hour and 22 minutes. Hosted by David Wilcox. Watch full screen on YouTube.
